The Feast of St. Agnes and the Blessing of the Lambs

January 21, 2010

Fr. Z has two posts on the Feast of St. Agnes today. The first details the history of St. Agnes of Rome. She was a little girl martyred in the 3rd or 4th century. Her martyrdom supposedly took place in the Piazza Navona in the heart of Rome.

Fr. Z’s second post for today’s feast is about the Holy Father blessing the lambs for the pallia.  You can also see a video of the Pope performing the blessing.
